[movies]GET LAMP: Brendan Desilets - Jason Scott
Brendan Desilets was pointed out to me by Nick Montfort, who said he was worth interviewing because of his long life in the public school system, and his work and research in the world of interactive fiction as a teaching tool could not be ignored. And Nick was right! Brendan has done amazing work with it, and while we discussed a bunch of things, his thoughts on educating classes through interactive fiction drive that section of GET LAMP.

[movies]GET LAMP: Adam Thornton - Jason Scott
I interviewed Adam in the same hotel room in Las Vegas that I interviewed Ian Bogost, all during a classic gaming convention being held at the Riviera casino. He was a big recommendation from Robb Sherwin, who I'd interviewed earlier. As it turned out, every clip of his interview I used in GET LAMP was either negative or world weary, but that's not really the tone of a lot of his answers. Adam is a continual IF writer, and loves the medium dearly, and had continued to add fun new works to the wo...

[movies]GET LAMP: Jeremy Douglass - Jason Scott
Jeremy Douglass was one of a number of interactive fiction doctorates I interviewed for GET LAMP. In Jeremy's case, his defense was imminent (or it might have just happened, I don't quite remember) and so this was all a relatively new thing for him. His mind was full of his dissertation's research so he was a great interview just on that level of things. He drew a lot of parallels of writing and games and interactive fiction, and he'd been involved with the whole modern scene for years and years...

[movies]GET LAMP: Mike Sousa Interview - Jason Scott
When recording dozens of interviews for a documentary, a few are going to have notably less footage than the others, for no major reason other than time constraints and subject matter. While Mike Sousa is very scant in the GET LAMP movie and bonus features, he gave an excellent interview, the clips from which are finally available here. Mike Sousa's most notable feature to me that caused me to seek him out was his method of collaborating with other authors for most of his work; he'd worked with ...

[movies]GET LAMP: Dan Shiovitz - Jason Scott
Dan Shiovitz, also known as "inky", had an enormous amount of helpful insight into the modern interactive fiction scene. What I found most interesting was that he didn't really worship or look up to the "classic" interactive fiction era. He thought it was nice and that they'd done some good work back then, but what interested him was what was being done now. His interview, therefore, is forward thinking, based on the modern era, and was really helpful all over GET LAMP to add statements that rea...

[movies]GET LAMP: Lance Micklus Interview - Jason Scott
Lance Micklus was one of my favorite experiences of all the interviews and production run of GET LAMP. As the founder of Lance Micklus, Inc., he was right there at the start of the computer game revolution, one of the small mom-and-pop software houses that put out games for computers, in his case mostly the TRS-80. His company had employees, put out a number of products that were advertised in magazines of the time, and he even did work with Scott Adams and Adventure International...

Interview with Ben Gardiner, Sysop of the Aids Info BBS in San Francisco, CA. A miscommunication as to the interview being on camera meant that Gardiner (a member of the Screen Actor's Guild) couldn't be filmed. We instead chose to do an audio interview, and conducted it across an hour on the evening of July 28, 2002.

Several people had suggested I meet up with Mike Gentry - his work, Anchorhead, had itself turned a bunch of heads with its style, emotion, and approach. While one can never really tell what someone is "first" and "second", he seemed a great writer first who happened to use interactive fiction to tell one of his stories, not unlike Adam Cadre with Photopia. So we made an arrangement to meet in Virginia, at his home...

Mike Roberts is the creator of TADS (Text Adventure Development System), one of the most popular game development systems. As one of the creators of commercial text adventure products in the 1990s, his perspective was invaluable for understanding the waning context of these games at that time. TADS continues to be developed and is considered a nearest competitor to the Inform system.

After he and the rest of the party took me down into the cave for the day, I snagged an interview with him, Roger Brucker and Tom Brucker, to get background about caves and caving and knowing how this game was based on the actual system. He was really kind to do so after a massive day of moving some annoying filmmaker around the bowels of the earth.

He was articulate and provided a wonderful dash of emotion into the descriptions which I used liberally in GET L...
